Federal 100: Drew Myklegard
Executive Director, Project Special Forces, Office of Information and Technology

Project Lighthouse allows approved developers to build applications based on the VA’s health data. In 2019, the effort scored a big win when Apple began offering veterans the ability to access and incorporate their VA health records and information into the Health app for iPhone. Myklegard’s leadership has kicked off a cultural shift at the VA, where many are now looking for ways to use APIs in their program areas.
